  9. Yea Girl Scouts! I’m a local West Seattle Troop Leader!!! I was one of the two leaders leading songs ALL THE WAY from the Admiral District to the Junction (you can imagine, I lost my voice some the following day!) We came in 2nd!!! I’m so proud of being not only a part of Girl Scouts but being a Native West Seattle-ite!
